WEBINAR: VISUAL IMPAIRMENT DIAGNOSIS - HOW DO I COPE?
This presentation is via the Internet with Enhance Vision, whose founder now has low vision, which assists him in producing low vision technology. It is located at 5882 Machine Drive, Huntington Beach, CA; Phone: 714.374.1829; Web: http://www.enhancedvision.com. Enhanced Vision has been at the forefront of the low vision field since its inception in 1996. It has brought many of the industry’s most innovative assistive technologies to the market. With a strong management background in medical devices, the company furthered the assistive technology market with the development of one of the first headworn magnifiers called the V-Max, now called JORDY. Today its product portfolio is considered one of the most diverse and reliable on the market.
Thanks to modern technology, conferences are now able to connect with individuals all over the world. This is how this presentation will work; everyone, who would like to take part in learning how to diagnosis & cope better with his or her vision problem, will visit the Center For Independence on January 29, 2013 from 10:45 – 12 pm; where counselors will be discussing via the Internet how to handle dealing with one’s loss of eyesight in a positive manner.
As Insight’s Coordinator is a blind person, she can relate to the many frustrations an individual may & do obtain while loosing their sight. Fortunately, due to proper counseling, education, & training, is she able to over come this hurdle & carry on as a productive non-sighted citizen in the Valley’s community. Please, come join in, sharing your own, unique frustrations with others that all may learn how to combat their frustrations with positive energy & how to determine if your sight is changing.
Again, the presentation will be conducted through the Internet via speakers on the computer, however, a discussion during the presentation will be conducted that a better perception on how to conquer the hurdle of low vision can be successful with a positive attitude. Then, if you would like to stay for lunch, bring $2.00 with you. The Vocational Program creates & serves lunch every Monday & Tuesday from 12 – 12:30 pm. If need transportation, let someone know. Please Reserve by Friday, January 25, 2013.
